Wow thanks for the pix on the new 1181. Lance has done a poor job of keeping their website up to date so this is the first I've seen or heard about it. The photos are great!
The 1181 is the one I've been waiting for. Fortunately I have no money so I'm stuck waiting at least a year. That's fine, because I have a few nitpicks with this thing that I'd like to tell Lance about...
First, I prefer my microwave above the stove, and I want a REAL propane oven like my current Lance. I do not like nor want a combo convection oven/microwave.
Second, I don't care for what they've done at the head of the bed. It looks very drab. I also don't like the left side of the bed area. I'd rather have full cabinets on both sides instead of that silly little "table" shelf thing.
The rear awning is nice but I don't see it lasting long in any kind of wind. I do prefer that style though and would prefer it on the side of the unit as well (I'm sure it's an option).
I would have liked to see them make it 11'11" long like the 1161 and have a larger wardrobe and bathroom.
Where is the battery box? Is it dual batteries? I sure hope so.
I love the pass-thru storage. I'd put extra batteries down there because that new "lip" sticking out on the underside of the camper eliminates any chance of keeping extra batteries in the fenderwell area of the truck.
It's definitely nice, but there are some shortcomings. At least it gives me a reason to continue to wait.
